Schlüter-VINPRO-STEP-R  Stair nosing profile for LVT coverings

Schlüter-VINPRO-STEP-R is a finishing and edge profile for installing resilient coverings such as LVT and vinyl coverings on stairs. The top portion of the profile features a horizontal 10 mm anchoring leg to conceal adjoining coverings and features a rounded profile edge.

The extended vertical section along the riser ensures optimum visibility. The tapered conical anchoring leg of VINPRO-STEP-R has evenly spaced drillings along the profile length for screw attachment. However, the anchoring leg can also be adhered to the substrate with an installation adhesive such as Schlüter-KERDI-FIX.
